Dream Wedding

The blushing bride always asks, "Does working here make you Bridal Crazy? I bet you have your whole wedding planned, don't you?!" And even though I am single, "Yes" I admit with a big smile, "I have some ideas." To be honest, I try not to plan every detail, because half the fun of getting engaged is deciding all of the fun little details while in the moment... plus I don't want to jinks myself. :) But non the less today, I will let you all in on my dream wedding...

I dream of a wedding with less than 100 guests, all close family and friends.
I dream that I'll be in a simple dress that screams my daring sense of fashion and reflects my fun and sweet personality.
I will wear a silk flower in my hair.
I'll get married in Venice Italy and arrive in a gondola.
My colors will be a slate blue, with champagne accents, and pink flowers.
My prince charming will be in a khaki suit.
Our ceremony will be very traditional and heart warming.
We will write our own vows.
Our reception will be candlelit and upscale simple.
Our guests will be enjoying a cocktail hour with floating hors dourves while we take pictures with the a sunset background.
We will then dance the night away and enjoy a sit down dinner and an open bar.

Now forgive me but I must go and find the MAN of my dreams... :)

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
